Running SQLFire in Virtualized Environments

Using a newer operating system version such as Red Hat 6 or SLES 11 can help performance in virtual environments. VMware provides a best practices guide.

See the Enterprise Java Applications on VMware Best Practices Guide for detailed information about deploying applications on VMware vSphereâ„¢.

Use newer operating system versions, such as RedHat 6 and SLES 11, to avoid issues with the performance of gettimeofday in virtualized environments. SQLFire makes calls to gettimeofday for managing membership, distribution timeouts, expiration, eviction, recovery, and so forth, and a much larger number of calls when enable-time-statistics=true or enable-timestats=true.
